in Cornwall May and June are the best time. The region has a
history full of legends and illicit shipwrecking. It is, one
of the UKs most popular tourist areas, offering a slower pace
of life with a mild climate and miles of unspoilt coastline
and secluded beaches. The Cornish peninsula juts out into the
Atlantic and provides a marked contrast between the calm inlets

found along the entire length of the coast, from early sailing
ships to modern day trawlers. Many ship wrecks are untouched
